Working Together to Make a Difference in Your Community
WeThinkItMatters® Campaign Cause
Because People Matter
We exist to develop and sustain relational environments that create movement within groups and individuals to demonstrate love and generosity lived out in the world. Because People Matter creates relational environments that provide Relief, Mobilization and Transformation.
Relational Approach: We believe the most influential, impactful and lasting way to love others is simply to live and experience life with the people around us. We move to be fully submerged and involved in the culture of the community we serve, while building raw and intentional relationships with the people we meet.
People: We believe that all people should feel known, that they matter, and that they are loved. We seek to influence others to live from these truths and to do good works, so that together we may be an inspiration to our city, state, nation and world.
Dialogue: Dialogue is the attitude in which we communicate with others. Our communication is a dynamic and open-minded dialogue. A dialogue that is honest, truthful and respectful; never degrading, judgmental or condemning.
Generosity: We seek to live generously. To give of our time, treasure and talent in such a way that our service and action is a means through which Love is revealed.
Adventure: We see life as an adventure, marked with creativity. We continue to seek new ideas and possibilities for ways to love people, to help them understand they are known, and that they matter.
Learning: We desire to see people grow both personally and professionally. It is important to always challenge oneself, and not feel stuck where growth or learning do not exist. We believe that each person must challenge his or herself in order to unlock the potential that lies in each of us.
Proactive: Because we value all people, we move to be intentional in our actions. By putting aside assumptions that “someone else will do it,” we understand we serve each other as we move towards the fulfillment of our mission.
Come and be with us for a bit! Spend some time fully immersed – set yourself in a place to be transformed. We developed Transformation Trips to do just that. Go, learn, return, respond… Be a part of the story! The Because People Matter story remains to be fully unfolded. What’s important is that we choose to be a part of that story.
